Bluelock Upgrades its Recovery-as-a-Service Solution with Capacity and Cost Analysis Features

The data gathered by an organization is a valuable and critical asset.  Organizations implement disaster recovery solutions to protect this data which can automatically manage recovery service levels.

Bluelock’s Recovery-as-a-Service (RaaS), or cloud-based disaster recovery solutions help customers to manage replication costs and failover site capacity to ensure optimum recovery. The company is a certified VMware vCloud datacenter that specializes in providing virtual datacenters that are hosted in the public cloud.

The Bluelock Portfolio customer portal, offers critical visibility and functionality that optimizes management of virtual machine replication, failover checkpoints, and capacity at the cloud DR site. The company has upgraded its Bluelock Portfolio customer portal to provide detailed capacity and cost analysis for its Recovery-as-a-Service solution.

The solution offers planned versus actual VM replication counts and storage consumption as well as providing visibility of committed, guaranteed capacity at the DR site in comparison with actual resources required for successful failover.

Bluelock’s solution reveals the number of available checkpoints from where recovery has to be effected giving a clear picture of what to failover in a disaster scenario. The Bluelock portfolio provides detailed graphs and statistics to exactly show why a replication group will override its preferred recovery point objective (RPO)

In addition, the overall cost analysis of protected virtual groups gives insights up to the VM level categorized on the basis of resource type such as storage, memory, compute or bandwidth.

In 2013, Bluelock was included in Gartner’s Critical Capabilities for Recovery as a Service research. The report evaluates vendors on seven critical capabilities: physical and virtual system recovery, testing and declaration, service manageability, pricing policy, resiliency, security and compliance, and value-added services.
